Is there really such a word as 'semi-ambidextrous'? I didn't find it in my dictionary, but I think that is what I am and plenty of other people. To be Ambidextrous is to be able to use BOTH hands EQUALLY well.
Semi-dexterous would be being able to do some things with each hand, not necessarily equally well.
I'm basically a righty, but I can do some things with both hands, paint, eat, write (even though I'm better at writing faster with my right).
Or could the word be 'semi-dextrous'?

Jill went to her doctor yesterday and was told that she will have to have chemo the rest of her life, or as long as it is still working.
She tires a lot and her bones hurt.
Next Wednesday she will be tested to see if her cancer markers have lowered. We hope so.
Thanks to everyone for your prayers

OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
I hadnít come in contact with much of that disorder until I realized that my mil little quarks were under the topic of OCD. Now my husband thinks the little things I do are alsoÖ.OCD. I consider them ways of organization.
Donít get me wrong, Iím a messy housekeeper, but Iím fussy about how my towels are folded to put on the shelves (because they fit better folded that way); the way I have to have my glasses in size on the shelves, from tallest to smallest (it makes it easier so whatever size you want you know where which side of the cupboard to open). Refrigerator has 4 shelves and one shelf is for drinks, no drinks should be on any other shelf (so we know what drinks we have and when we are out of them) Food on other shelves, no drinks allowed. Bread has itís own shelf (for same reason as drinks)
Salad dressing on one shelf (so we know what we have to reorder any we are out of any).
Napkins go in holder one way, the fold on top (so when you take one out, it isnít unfolding)
My blouses in one closet have to go on a hanger in a certain way, but in the other closet they go on the opposite way (so I can see the front of the shirt), no designs on walls (so I can see any spiders if any on the wall), covers on bed must not touch floor (so spiders canít climb aboard).
My husband makes fun of me because at the store Iím always putting something back on the shelf that fell off or organizing something because it is in the wrong place. (that way things are with the things it goes with) I am that way at home too, case in point, drinks with drinks and bread with bread. I used to keep the small forks together and dinner forks together but he never kept it that way so now they are mixed.
Empty hangings go at the end of rack not in between clothes (drives me crazy, so that way you have all your empty hangers hanging together whenever you need one) I sometimes take empty hangers at the thrift store and hang them at the end of the rack.
Husband grabs his sweater and carries it any old way. I tell him to take it by the tag on the collar and fold it over. (sleeves won't hang on ground)
Prior dayís newspaper must be put back in order and put in newspaper stand Sun in the back and Sat in front. When week is done, they go out to the recycle bin (so if you are looking for a certain newspaper, it is there in order and all together).
For those who have OCD, I don't think there is a team for this.
IĎm sure thereĎs other things IĎm not remembering.
So you see, everything has a meaning so I donít have OCDÖ..or do I?
If I think of anything else, I'll add.
My husband and I do have one bad habit in common, we can't get rid of things. We aren't hoarders though. We both have two closets we share full of clothes...okay I have some in another closet as well. I can't get rid of my fat clothes, skinny clothes or in between. I always need then at some time or other. Video tapes of shows I've taped are taking over the den. I have two cabinets full as well.
I just find it hard to get rid of things. We have had yard sales and got rid of stuff (so I'm not a horrdor), but I have so much that I've never used, when I get rid of something, I end up needing it down the road.
I have a hard time getting rid of purses and shoes, I did get rid of some then found out a place that can widen shoes, I still have more than needed.

I weighed in on my BLC team and was a couple onces over what I w/i last week. Not bad. Looking back to the beginning, I've lost a couple pounds. Not much but better than gaining.
I'm working more on strength training for my WWoHP team and hope to make some inch changes, not that I have been measuring as I should have been along.

I've been having fun trying to find my ancesters, but so many brick walls. I've started to put each family on colored paper, different color for each family, but just to find them on census etc to put on my tree. '
One member I couldn't find at all so just put the info on myself. My cousin did a famiily tree and sent me my part so I trust his info. He had genealogist helping him. I just like to find them so I can add them officially to my tree.
The hardest if way back when they didn't put the kids names, they just put 2 males and 4 females, no names or ages. How can you find anything like that?
I try to find an ancester as a child so to find their parents, but sometimes it just doesn't work. I get along better when I get clues from cousins or message boards. I've met a couple cousins (online) who I didn't know, just from doing my tree.
I have this obession t find my Irish side, but if they are out there, they are pretty good at hiding. The one clue that my grandmother gave me, doesn't work out from the census records.
I've found my German, Scottish and English side.
I made a separate notebook for each family (well, not all but the ones I'm finding info on), so I can at least have it in a book, if not on my online tree.
Leigh, TenEyck, Ferguson, Knowles, Arthur, Galloway, Culp.
I got this from my Genealogy team and I'll probably find my Irish in the last set of grandparents.

UPDATE SINCE FIRST POSTED:
I came across a posting for the parents of my earliest relative posted to me tree.
Wilhelm TenEyck parents are Andreas and Anneke. But for there parents names it says "EOL" which means End of Line.
How can it be the end of the line, they had to have parents. It was on a few different trees, not just one. ?????
